Last minute booking found us this great little find. Amazing room, pool, service and location. It was quite, close to the boat harbour and restaurants, had a great beach location across the road and owners were lovely. Very happy we found it and will definitely be back!

What can one expect for $110 a night? A basic room, with a small bathroom and no view. But the room was very clean and tidy and the location was generally very quiet (apart from a cane toad that croaked occasionally) ... but too isolated for me. Personally, I think you need a car if you are going to stay... More

Hubby & I spent 10 days in bungalow 1. It has a very well equipped kitchen if you wish to make meals. (I didn't) The Boat Club is close by and a couple of pubs also. We found it quiet which is what we liked. Friendly host helped with confusing tv channels. (We don't have foxtel at home). Cost is... More

Great location and value but don't expect waterfront or fancy. Friendly staff and easy to get to. Look for the hervey bay seafood festival and make the trip while combining with a day trip to Frasier Island(rent a ute!)

Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip. Booked online through Wotif. Proprietors accommodated my late check-in requirements by allowing me to pick up the key early in the day. Room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. However, the TV was mounted on the wall above the bed so you could not lie in bed and watch TV and there... More

We have just stayed for a week in a family villa. It had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful in advising activities. It was about 200 metres from the boat marina and the Boat Club which made it an easy walk. The beach with calmer... More

We spent two nights here before and after our Whale Catching trip. The room was small but comfortable for a couple, the only problem was the bed sagged on one side from a missing castor. Hopefully this has been fixed after we reported it.

Stayed 1 night before a whale watching trip. Arrived late after reception was closed but was given a code and had no trouble getting key from security box. Room was clean and tidy with small kitchenette which had everything you would need if you were cooking. Our studio room had a pull down bed which was perfectly adequate for our... More

For the price, it's probably fair value for money. Very helpful staff member booked us in but don't be mislead by the name, it's NOT a resort. Very clean, but dated...the bed was fairly new but damn hard.The bathroom was a bit weird....super sensitive shower over the bath.The kitchen had a sign over the sink that explained that any guest...

Tidy homely motel. Cooking facility provided.Motel is only 5 minutes drive to the Marina where all the whale watch boats depart.So it is very handy. Though the motel is facing a major road the traffic noise at night was minimal. Air conditioner worked well. Bathroom facility was run of the mill type. The skylight window on roof of the bathroom...

Thank you Anthony for your comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay in our unit. Look forward to your return in the future. The only thing that worried us about your comments were "the OLD couple", (we still feel reasonably young) so I had a look in the mirror and maybe we have aged a lot since owning... More
